then checkout as usual.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
Additional Marks & Notes

This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
An important early album from Eddie Palmieri – one in which he introduces the "mozambique" rhythm – essentially a conga-styled approach to the tune, and one that features a lot more percussion than on his earlier sides! The group that supports him is strong enough to carry ... LP, Vinyl record album
Eddie Palmieri and the Coco label were a team that couldn't be beat – and this beautiful album is complete proof of that fact! The set's a wonderful batch of tunes – expanded arrangements from Eddie with just the right touches of funk, jazz, or rootsy instrumentation, shifting moods ... LP, Vinyl record album
Eddie Palmieri's work for the Coco label is some of his best of the 70s, and this album is no exception – and while the title may call the record "unfinished", it sounds pretty darn well done to our ears – far better than most other Latin sides of the time! The album includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
A groovy groovy classic from Celia and Tito! The record is one of the pair's strong sides from the Latin soul years – and as usual, Celia really benefits from Tito's strong musical backing. The set includes their great cover of "Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In", done in a boogaloo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice jazzy Latin groovers from Marco – played on hard heavy piano, with lots of tight spare percussion in the background! The tracks push past the usual Cha Cha sort of groove – and seem to encompass a number of complicated themes and styles, agumented by some extra exotic percussion. ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great album of hard, spare cha cha cha tracks by some of the best artists recording for the Tico label during the late 50s. Don't be put off by the "mixed artist" nature of the set – as it's a really strong one, and has a very unified feel overall, thanks to the quality of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Tito's classic 50's recordings for Tico, all of which have a much rawer sound than his work for RCA from the same time. The tracks on here represent some Tito's best work in the Cha Cha Cha format – played with a hard sound and a good percussive drive aimed towards a very appreciative ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nicely laidback Latin tracks from the early days of Tico – featuring work by Tito Puente, and a few more other obscure artists on the label! Titles include "Temptation", "Tito's Merengue", "The Fence", and "Cha Cha Cha Bounce" by Tito; "Make A ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great one from Ray – billed on the cover as the "El Watusi Man", and recorded with a similar Charanga Moderna sound to that big hit. The grooves are tighter than those on most of his contemporaries, and the charanga sound is expanded here with a range of influences, and even a ... LP, Vinyl record album
An obscure late 50s set on Tico – one that puts its money where its mouth is, with titles that include "Trinidad Cha Cha Cha", "Cha Cha Cha In Barcelona", "USA Cha Cha Cha", "Cha Cha Cha In Hawaii", and "Monaco Cha Cha Cha". LP, Vinyl record album
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album
